“The sweetest R-help group this side of the Mississippi.”

Welcome to the Davis R Users’ Group (DRUG)! We are a community of R users at UC Davis who support each other in using R for science. Our focus is providing a space for beginning and intermediate users to learn from each other.

  • Come to our weekly work sessions: This is the core purpose of DRUG. We have weekly, 2-hour work sessions where people bring their computers to work on their own projects, and ask each other questions as needed. We have no TAs - just mutual support in R, statistics, and related topics. Group members sometimes give short presentations on R methods and best practices or to get feedback on their projects.

    For Spring Quarter 2016, weekly work sessions will be be held Mondays 1pm - 3pm in Wickson 1017.

    For real-time updates on weekly work sessions and presentations, follow @Voovarb and @ucdlevy on Twitter.

  • Join the mailing list: The mailing list is an online supplement to our in-person work sessions.

  • Use the resources on this site: We’ve compiled a list of resources to help you get started using R and find answers to your questions. Click on the “Getting Started” or “Past Presentation” tabs above to check them out.

We’re fortunate have sponsorship from Revolution Analytics for our snacks and speaker prizes.
